Abstract
PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to describe the essential structure of the lived experience of working mothers' parenting burden in Korea.

Eight working mothers with young children were interviewed. The Colaizzi analysis of phenomenological research was applied.
RESULTS
Seven theme clusters were extracted: a life with constant conflict, sense of guilt, feeling anxious because of lack of information about education for their children, social stigma as a deficient mother, family relationship becoming distant, a life being exhausted, day to day struggle.
CONCLUSION
These results provide an opportunity to have a better understanding of the experiences of working mothers related to parenting their young children. It would also serve as a medium for the formulation of appropriate nursing intervention relevant to burdens of parenthood.
